Simple Shabby with some water coloring decor

Hi lovelies!

So happy to be back, as I miss you so ..
Today is Easter on Indonesian time table, of course I would love to say :
Happy Easter to everyone!

I have some water coloring decor at this time, pssst  ...  my talented friend Vera was giving a brilliant inspiration for me to do the water coloring on my card,
hmmm .. she is my best supporter I think, she never give up to encourage me to try something new.. thank's hun! mmmwah!

Sometimes I just love to color when I see a cute image and I don't want to place the images as a second point of my card! I want everyone noticed that she is the focus beside the beautiful environment, so I don't want put too much embellishment here.
But I have an invention though, I did decor my image with some water coloring technique and the challenge is I have to do it on a small space .. ok .. I've tried and I really hope you will like the result as much as I do :)

Water coloring on card making was become a trend for nowadays and how I found that I love this technique so much! I bet I will try for another way with this water coloring.. 
I didn't left the shabby touch as I am a shabby lover .. and suddenly I just thinking about Cath Kidson's .. ha ha .. yeah, I love their shabby a lot and it was inspired me to pick the color combo.


This is what I do .. did you noticed the color palette behind my image ? 
I use Faber Castell water color and it was only about $3 and satisfied me with the result!

Below is the list about the things I used :
Tilda with Cross Necklace - Magnolia Stamp "Special Moments" 2013
French Foliage - Stampin'Up!
Coloring images - Ranger Distress Ink
Other mediums - FC Water Color, Platinum liquid pearl, stardust stickles, silver pen, Sakura gelly roll, HEro art white embossing powder, I am roses tiny deep red roses, wood button.

Thank you so much for visiting me today and enjoy your Easter!

Hugs, Yulis

Leo's mini diary book

Hello ...

It's me again and I have a little something to share for you :)
I just love one image from the latest Zodiac collection - Leo !!
How cute she is with the cutest tail and her hair .. just gorgeous wild! I Loveee her!

and today I made a little diary book for Leo ;)

not too thick book but it was so cute to write some words from the sweet Leo journey ;)

here is the front look .. simple design with only card stock no design paper this time, just masking some washed color with chalk and distress ink.

white papers inside to write the notes, binding all together and tied with organza on a cinnamon stick.

Here is my cute Leo Tilda :)
I do not put lots of embellishment here but I did some fun artsy though ..
I cut some pieces of water color paper with DH - Heart Swirl and then I cut them randomly, glue it on the oval edge, because they come from the same paper so they turn become faux embossed. The edge inked with several color and ending with walnut stain. I use aged taupe from Stampendous to make gorge effect and not forget .. Ancient - African Gold embossing powder from Ranger because I love them more glittering, blink and shine ;)
the only one decoration on the book is a cute mushroom!! the mushroom comes from cork sheet that I cut with DH - Mushroom kit from Lost and Found 2014

whoot .... okay, enough for today!
Thank you for stopping here and will see ya soon!!!!

Big Hugs,

Would love to join at SSS - Glitter it (hope glitter embossing count in ..)

Friends - Gemini Zodiac

Hello my dear fellows ..
Today I would love to share about my fun coloring time few days ago, It was so much exciting when I've got some of Zodiac collection from Magnolia and it likes got some toys yay!! .. he he
Before I'll go with my own Zodiac (Big Thanks to Magnolia, they allowed me to have my sign and also my mother sign too !) I picked the Gemini .. I am happy to say that this image could fit in all occasion not just for birthday event .. they could use for friendship, prompt celebration, tweenies anniversary and so on ..
But no card yet for today .. ho ho don't be disappointed :)
I will show you to create a shabby chic flowers motif on Tilda's dress ..
here it is,

Before I go with the coloring, first I would love to share about the new ink pad that I used. That was a dye ink from Simon Says Stamp and I found it have no smear with my water coloring, I stamped on Bockingford water color paper that has a rough surface and it works good! will think to take a chance with smooth surface later soon.
Okay, for the coloring .. as usual I love to paint with distress ink refill that was also I did for my image, except .. the peachy flower on the dresses and grass flower.
Nothing special on my way when I painted, just on this case I took a bit of color direct from the gelatos and paint on the image, clean my brush and blending it out, just it.

I had so much fun to do this, because whenever I saw Tilda using a dress with plain fabric I really want she use some patterned fabric or may be one day she will using Batik :)
You also can use paper piecing technique but for me .. this way I choose because I am not good with the fussy cutting LoL ..

“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh?" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's hand. "I just wanted to be sure of you.”

― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

Okay .. That's all for today and I try to come back here soon!
Thanks for visiting me and see ya!!!
